Turkish president says Khashoggi's "savage" murder "planned for days"

Evidence Shows Khashoggi Was 'Brutally Murdered,' Turkish President Erdogan Says

The case has shocked the world and raised suspicions that a Saudi hit squad planned Khashoggi's killing after he walked into the consulate on October 2, and then attempted to cover it up.

Mr Erdogan called the death of Khashoggi an "attack on Turkey's reputation" which "will not be able to detain us from the seeking the truth".

However, he kept pressure on the kingdom with his demands for Turkish prosecution of the suspects as well as punishment for the plot's masterminds.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday also criticized the Saudi operation that killed Khashoggi, calling it one of the "worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups".

Iran had been silent about the Khashoggi case until Monday, when its judiciary chief slammed Saudi Arabia over his death. American intelligence officials and lawmakers have said that an operation targeting a critic of the royal court in a foreign country is unlikely to have been ordered without the knowledge of senior Saudi officials.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's claim earlier Tuesday, Pence said, that "this brutal murder was premediated - pre-planned days in advance - flies in the face of earlier assertions that have been made by the Saudi regime".

Visa records are considered confidential and Pompeo did not say which or how many Saudi officials would have their visas revoked. According to the statement, the Saudi prosecutor will continue its investigation based on the new information.

Kushner has developed a personal relationship with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, who some Republican senators have said is responsible, directly or not, for Khashoggi's death.

Saudi officials initially denied Khashoggi's death, but Friday acknowledged he'd been killed.

"It is a disgrace that reaches all the way to Crown Prince (Mohammed bin) Salman".

Mohammed has denied any prior knowledge of the of the mission and on Wednesday called the journalist's killing "a ugly crime".

Worldwide skepticism has intensified since Saudi Arabia said on Saturday that Khashoggi died in a brawl.

Responding to a question on the probe into the death of Khashoggi, the U.S. president said, And where it should have stopped is at the deal standpoint, what they thought about it. "We are determined to uncover every stone".

Rouhani also called on Turkey's government to conduct an impartial investigation into Khashoggi's "unprecedented" murder.

Investigators are examining the Saudi Consul-General's residence in Istanbul. His body has not yet been found. But Sabah, another pro-government newspaper that has published leaks about the case from Turkish officials, said Saudi Arabia had yet to give Turkish authorities permission for a search.

Erdogan said a team of 15 Saudis flew to Istanbul early in the morning on October 2, including a forensic expert and intelligence officers.

After two weeks of denial, Saudi Arabia finally admitted he died inside their mission, alleging the 59-year-old got into a "fist fight" with a group of 15 secret service interrogators.
